1/4 cup[50 mL]Carnation® Regular or 2% Evaporated Milk 
1 egg
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 tsp[4 mL]salt

In a large bowl, combine ground meat, breadcrumbs, evaporated milk, egg, garlic, salt and pepper. Mix well. With dampened hands, shape into about 30 meatballs. Arrange in a single layer in a greased 13- x 9-inch (3 L) baking dish.

In a bowl, whisk together ketchup, orange juice, sugar, soy sauce, ginger, lemon zest and chili flakes. Whisk in evaporated milk. Pour sauce over meatballs.

Bake in a preheated 350ºF (180ºC) oven for 40 to 45 minutes, shaking pan occasionally, to turn and coat meatballs. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
